    Please remember when leaving a comment on my blog that all comments are subject to the blog owners discretion. I do believe in freedom of speech, however, that right is not absolute. Here are the rules: 1 - Please remember the victim(s) first and foremost. Do not come here to comment only on the offender(s). My blog focuses on the victim(s). Do not glorify the killer(s). No negative comments about the victim. NO VICTIM BLAMING. 2 - I will not tolerate hate filled speech, vulgar or derogatory remarks about a victim. I will remove comments that go against this. I will not remove comments just because they do not match my beliefs, in fact, I welcome them! However, that being said, I will remove those that I find offensive, argumentative just for the sake of starting an argument that does not add to the post, hate-filled speech, etc. 3-No comments in ALL CAPS, or CoMeNtS. They are rude and difficult to read. I have had many complaints about it so no more. 4-Comments must be in English only and easy to read (meaning no text language, shortening words, etc.). Have respect for those who don't do text messaging or other lingo. 5 - ALL COMMENTS LEFT BY COMMENTORS ARE THEIR OWN AND THEIR OPINIONS. THEY DO NOT CONSTITUTE FACTS. NOR IS THE BLOG OWNER RESPONSIBLE FOR ANYONE'S OPINIONS OR FEELINGS. STATEMENTS MADE AS COMMENTS ARE OPINIONS, GIVEN FREELY BY THE COMMENTORS. If you have a question or problem with this, please feel free to email me (there is a link to my email above).

Pervert Alley: Shawn Joseph McCormack videotaped himself raping an 11-month-old child


Shawn Joseph McCormack

I am b betting that this sick, demented man thought he got away with rping this innocent child. However, several law enforcement agencies worked together to make sure that did not happen. This child will have life-long damage, both emotionally and physically. This pervert needs to learn that children ARE NOT sexual beings. He took away this child’s innocence. I hope that he will never again be a free man.

Execution Alert: Peter Cantu (for the rape & murders of Elizabeth Pena and Jennifer Ertman)


Peter Anthony Cantu

Peter Anthony Cantu was executed last night. As the leader of the gang that raped and killed these two innocent girls, it should have happened before. He never showed any remorse for these crimes, nor did he have a last statement. He did not apologize for his crimes. He was a sociopath who got exactly what he deserved, except that it should have happened many years ago. Cantu was on death row for 17 years, which is longer than either Jennifer or Elizabeth were alive.
